Centre for Ocean Engineering, Science and Technology

Swinburne’s focus on the fundamental science and engineering underpinning new ocean-related technologies was inspired by its successful Centre for Ocean Engineering, Science and Technology (COEST), which ran from 2012 to 2016. The Centre was awarded a 5 (well above world standard) in the Australian Research Council’s Excellence in Research for Australia ranking.

Swinburne’s continuing ocean-related research includes studies into the fluid dynamics of ocean wave power, fundamentals of underwater acoustics, and research into underwater micro-robots.
